Taylor Wimpey have in recent weeks written to residents across the area advising them the plans for the development have been uploaded onto their website. Naturally people have logged on to view these, and Taylor Wimpey stress the housing has been confined to the Southern end of the site. There is, however, a serious discrepancy between the plans on the website that residents have been notified of, and the plans logged at EHDC. Full marks to Kim for spotting it.
The drawing on the left is from Taylor Wimpey’s website and shows the site stopping well short of Francis Road. The drawing on the right is what has actually been submitted to EHDC and shows the site stopping North of Francis Road. Here they are side by side so you can spot the difference.
It may very well be the case that you received Taylor Wimpey’s letter, viewed their website and decided that you could live with the revised plans. If so, the revised plans may come as a shock.
Frankly this stinks. The quality and competency of the entire consultation process for this development has been the poorest and least worth while of any I have experienced. For clarity, Here is a copy of the masterplan issued to EHDC as part of the planning application. THIS is the version that will be decided on by the planners and should be commented on.
